|DISTANCE TABLE for All Regular Passenger, Express and Superfast Trains|
|Konkan Railway, being built and
run by a special corporation, the KRCL, under the BOLT (Build Operate
Lease Transfer) for the Indian Railways, has a special inflated fare over
the distance under its jurisdiction, as a part of the effort to recover
the massive investment that has been put in this project. The distance on
the KR is inflated by 40% and fares are charged on basis of the inflated distances.
The table with use of color coded rows and columns indicates the chargeable distance between two points. To keep this table of a manageable size, only major points have been considered, which are directly connected by train. It is possible to calculate distance for other points also using the data in the table.

Fares are laid out on basis of chargeable distance. However additional charges like reservation fee and superfast charge are payable and are indicated accordingly. For 1A,2A and 3A, bed rolls are included in the fare.
